React.js is the new hotness in the land of user interfaces. It’s descriptive approach pairs wonderfully with ClojureScript’s functional underpinnings.

This episode will show how to build an app with React, all from comfortable ClojureScript. It provides a solid foundation for diving into React wrappers like Reagent or Om later on, and it’s a welcome exercise in using ClojureScript’s interop features.
